Postcards from Italy August 29, 2006

Ciao tutti! I got into Fiumicino Airport on Wednesday evening. I was supposed to get there in the afternoon. It was dramatic, but I’m here, in Rome, and I’m loving it. 🙂

I want to make a big post about all that I’ve done so far, but I would never be able to remember it all. I actually wanted to know, did anybody wanted a postcard from Vatican City/Rome/Italy/Europe? I want to send some, so I figured I’d open it up to my lovely and beautiful LJ friends. It doesn’t matter if I’ve never met you. I think I can spare the postage. 🙂

So, if you’ll take me up on the offer, here’s what I need from you:
1. Your Name
2. Your Current Mailing Address
3. Your Preferred Postcard Image (Optional)

Just so you know, all comments on this entry will be screened, so I promise I’m not just handing out your personal information to the masses. However, if you’re really uncomfortable, just email me at “FIRE AND RAIN [at] GMAIL [dot] COM”. Anyway … you know what to do. Just remove the spaces (even in the username) and replace the bracketed words. Bene!

I love you all, I miss you, and I promise to take more pictures so I can put them all up. I’ve been a bad picture-taker. 😦 Alas. I must soon go to practice my Italian. We’ll see how that goes. 🙂

I am one day closer to leaving. My flight is on Tuesday. I need to finalize the reservation. I must make photocopies. I’m not packed. This is all going by far too fast, and I’m scared out of my mind. I don’t feel like I can move, yet I know I must. My parents are treating me as if this is just another one of my procrastinating schemes, and that bugs the heck out of me, because I feel as if they don’t care much. In my heart, I know they do, and that they want me to be prepared, so I won’t be panicking on the last day, and I won’t be crying. I love them so much. I just wish we were on the same wavelength. Anyway, I need to find a shirt and a sweater and keep on packing. This computer is horribly distracting. Gah!!!

Less than two weeks. I am scared shitless. Well … maybe not, but it feels as if things are just changing far too fast. Saw The Light In The Piazza yesterday afternoon. It was adorable. I went with my cousin Becky. And now I have to go to work. Ciao!
